The 11th generation of HPE ProLiant servers arrives

HPE has submitted a new generation of its range of ProLiant servers, the 11th, designed for a wide variety of next-generation workloads. These include Artificial Intelligence, analytics, cloud-native applications, graphics-intensive apps, machine learning, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), and virtualization.

The new ProLiant servers have three processor choices: AMD Epyc Genoachips Intel Xeon Scalable Sapphire Rapids and the native processors clous Ampere Altra and Altra Max. Compared to previous generation servers, the new HPE ProLiant Gen11 supports twice the input and output bandwidth, and boasts 33% higher performance GPU density per server. All with the aim of better supporting workloads that require high power, such as Artificial Intelligence and those that use intensive graphics, than previous generation servers.

These new ProLiant servers support public cloud integration through HPE GreenLake for Compute Ops Management, a cloud-native, software-as-a-service-based management console that provides a unified port for all ProLiant servers. a company, whether they are on premises, at the edge or in the cloud. With this, the servers address the problem of having data centers in multiple locations for companies.

HPE GreenLake for Compute Ops Management also includes carbon footprint reporting so customers can view emission metrics. These range from individual servers to entire computing environments, and allow you to control energy use.

Another highlight of these servers is security, which it addresses with the integration of tools such as HPE Silicon Root of Trust, a security mechanism that protects the firmware code from malware and ransomware. The chips that integrate it are chips in which security is integrated to protect the firmware, and that ensure the non-execution of code that could endanger it. In addition, they validate the code to ensure that it is not infected with malware.

HPE ProLiant servers build on this security novelty to protect data and systems. It ensures the verification and authentication of device components with the new version of HPE Integrates Lights-Out (iLO), with iLO6. ILO is remote server management software that enables customers to securely configure, monitor, and update HPE servers.

This latest version features new authentication using the Security Protocol and Data Model (SPDM), a security capability to securely authenticate and monitor devices, with an open standards-based approach. On the other hand, it avoids the alteration of access to the unique identity of the server, thanks to the fact that it offers platform certifications and Secure Device Identity (iDevID) by default.

The new HPE ProLiant servers also achieve authentication by monitoring secure boot as well as system health. They do this through the Trusted Platform Module (TPM), a specialized industry-standard chip that integrates with the motherboard to secure the hardware using embedded cryptographic keys. This TPM chip helps secure ProLiant servers against firmware and ransomware attacks.

On the other hand, HPE will guarantee the security of ProLiant servers with Trusted Supply Chain. This function has certified servers with reinforced data protection during the manufacturing process.

the new servers 11th Gen HPE ProLiant with AMD and Ampere Processors they’ll be avalaible starting next November 10, while those with Intel chips will arrive sometime next year, when Sapphire Rapids chips become available. The server HPE ProLiant RL300 Gen11 using Ampere processors is now available. All will be available through direct purchase or through the HPE GreenLake consumption model.

Neil McDonald, Vice President of HPE, and its Chief Computing Officerhas recalled that «heThe basis of any hybrid strategy is computing. HPE Compute brings businesses to the edge, where data is created, where new cloud experiences are deployed, and where security is integral. New HPE ProLiant Gen11 servers are designed for the hybrid world to deliver an intuitive cloud operating experience, trusted security by design, and workload-optimized performance«.
